Welcome to another week of Book Talk Thursday!
Easter is right around the corner, which means only one thing ~ Spring Break for me next week!! This week I am focusing on one of my favorite Easter books that I am going to use with my first graders ~ Jan Brett's The Easter Egg. If you have not read this book, it is a must read! The illustrations and story are wonderful!
As always, the illustrations in the book are not only gorgeous, but they also show snippets of the story for a fuller experience! You really can't go wrong when reading this book with your children or students. The message of care and love go along with our own thoughts of Easter and spring.
I am going to read the book aloud with my students and work on some predicting skills. We will also focus on the theme of the story and how we all need to help others and not focus on our own selves.
On Fun Friday, we are going to have a little Easter Egg Hunt of our own. I am going to hide these little cards in my million plastic eggs. The students will find the eggs and read the words. Once they read the words on the cards, they will sort the words as real or nonsense words. I can't wait to hide the eggs and then watch them find the eggs! I love a good Easter egg hunt! Click on the pictures below or here to grab this from my Dropbox. I have also included the eggs in black in white, for those who want to save on ink!
Until next time!
